Wands-A-Ready, Sorcery Heading To PS3 This May

By David Howard, Editor-in-Chief and Founder

Having come out of hiding at the back-end of last year, Sony has now confirmed the release date of the impressive looking PlayStation Move title Sorcery.

It will be released on May 23 across all PAL regions and May 22 in North America.

Need a recap of what’s going one? Here’s a quick summary courtesy of Brian Upton, Creative Director on Sorcery.

Finn is in trouble.

First he accidentally blew up his master’s alchemy lab. Then he let Erline, his master’s magical cat, talk him into trespassing in the realm of the dead. Now he’s unleashed an ancient universe-destroying evil that won’t stop until everything he cares about is utterly annihilated.

It’s not been a good day.

Even though he’s only an apprentice, it’s up to Finn to defeat the Nightmare Queen before she can destroy the human world. To do this he must plunge deep into the realm of faerie — the Endless Stair, the Faerie Forest, the Slumbering Palace. With Erline travelling at his side he must master powerful and arcane magical spells, and use them to overcome the strange and twisted servants of Nightmare. He must solve challenging puzzles, and decipher the mysteries of alchemy. He must discover the secrets of the Nightmare Queen’s power, and undo the damage that she has wrought.

And, above all, he must earn the right to be called … Sorcerer.

So nearly two years after its first reveal, Sorcery will be making its way into the hands of gamers worldwide. Game on.
